  • 整個博物館的範圍比想像中小,但是展示內容精緻有趣,無障礙設施的設置也順暢隱密(呵呵,大家都找不到,但是真的需要的人卻很好找到)。缺點是門票真的很貴! 
  • 這個地方比較偏僻, 建議自駕人士前往。在門外已有很多小王子的雕塑裝飾可供人拍照, 店內的博物館要收費, 不過如果是小王子迷的話, 也是值得付錢一遊的。 
  • 園區佈置的很精緻用心!有一棟屋子裡面特別介紹了小王子這本書的作者的生平經歷, 還擺放了各國語言版本的小王子書, 很特別. 也有展示原本小王子的手稿和圖像, 小王子圖像演變到現在的樣子, 是被改良過的, 不過還是保留有當初版本的神韻呢! 園區內的工作人員也很熱心, 會主動詢問是否需要幫忙拍照.

  • This museum is so fantastic! I love Le Petit Prince so this museum taught me more about the author and I got some great photo opportunities. I definitely suggest going here! I went to Hakone just to see this museum and it was worth the day trip!
  • Great little place, I thought it was a little expensive, but it was acceptable. I learnt a lot more about Antoine St Exupery. It was also beautifully designed with certain photograph spots which teaches you where to take photos to look good :D Good for photograph newbs like myself. We left soon as we were on a hurry to get to the airport though.
  • My son was reading The Little Prince when we headed to Hakone and...surprise! This little gem of a museum was right there in Hakone! It is sweet and delightful. Exterior is a charming garden with a replica of the house the author grew up in and including statues of all the characters and places in the book. Inside you'll find the story of his life and they have the authors actual passport! At the end you 'enter' into the book. Charming little restaurant there and gift shop...also charming. TIP: Last entrance 30 mins before. Check website for hours, etc.
  • Lovely place, would love to be there again soon
  • Insanely detailed homage to Saint-Exupéry with lots of fun in it. A good museum in its right with an interesting historical account, it features a very clever and challenging treasure hunt with nice puzzles. However, you will need a Japanese speaker to play. There is also a simple stamp collecting exercise suited to younger children.
